Ms. Sharon Lasher, Principal
Welcome back for the 2021-2022 school year!
I am thrilled to report that our first few days of classes have been filled with excitement, enthusiasm, students who are ready to learn, and teachers who are thrilled to have our students all in!
Many of our students have had the opportunity to meet our two new assistant principals, Mrs. Gibbons and Dr. O’Hara. ID Cards have been distributed to most students and we will begin using them to scan in for students in grades 9-12 immediately, and those in grades 7-8 very soon. Any senior student who uses his or her off-campus privilege, must swipe out upon exiting the building and swipe back in when they return.
We have several new staff members this year and they are so excited to be here! New teachers, teacher assistants, monitors, and administrators are busy acclimating to our wonderful learning community. Our fall athletic teams, grades 9-12, have been gearing up for their seasons. Our Varsity football team had their first game and first win of the season last weekend! We look forward to more football games ahead! You may access the athletic schedules at our website, obenschools.org. Our middle level athletics will be starting up soon as well. Our student government groups are ready to begin preparation for the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Homecoming, which will be held on Saturday, October 2. Stay tuned for details on this fun-filled community event.
Our Open House is Thursday, September 30, starting at 7pm. We will be holding this event virtually this year in the same format as last year. Videos for each class will be posted by each teacher and a compiled list will be sent to all families as we near that date.
Please continue to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Sharon Lasher, Principal
